Expressen 1995) In September 1995, a few large newspapers publish articles that once more associate the Centre with athletic anorexia (Dagens Nyheter 1995; GöteborgsPosten 1995; Svenska Dagbladet 1995). The articles refer to a press conference held by the Swedish Sports Confederation and the researchers at the Centre. At the conference the results of a research project conducted at the Centre on prevalence, causes, characteristics and treatment of athletic anorexia has been presented. The results indicate that female athletes run a fifteen-times greater risk of getting an eating disorder.
